The Twins Ball Boy Left It All On The Field To Make This Sprawling Catch On A Line Drive
Who else does the does ball boy have to save from a blistering line drive to get a long term deal around here? Seriously, the Twins are 8-24. If there is anyone that deserves to be in the front office discussing the terms of his contract then it's the ball boy who has far exceeded expectations. Hell, with a golden glove like that he might be able to fill a role as a utility infielder. The awareness, the quickness, the ability to finish off the play. I don't know about all 5 tools, but he's got at least two more than nearly every other ball boy I have seen. Not saying he's the most talented person in the league, but he's outperforming every one else of his job title. I don't what that makes his market value, but I'm sure it's higher than what he's getting paid right now. It's like acquiring a catcher that hits for power. The luxury of having a reliable talent at that position when hardly anyone else does makes it worth overpaying. They need to throw this kid some excess shekels because he's providing a service that keeps asses in the seats that would be in the back of an ambulance without him. He's just out there saving fearful children from black eyes and likely hospital visits, and if that's not worth a little extra padding in the wallet then nothing taking place on the baseball diamond in Minnesota is worthy of reimbursement.
